E. 81fYDER,-P.'op. a To the Croakers. To the Editor:— The fact that I have announced myself to the voters of Livingston precinct as a candidate for the office of justice of the peace, has called forth a considerable amount of unjust and unmanly criticism. In asmuch as I am not a nominee of either party, the simple announce ment of my candidacy for the office is regarded by some hair brained politi cians as a sacrilegious invasion of what they deem the sacred rights of party. Now, sir, any remarks coming from the persons to whom I refer, I would deem unworthy of notice, were it not for the fact that they are the in struments through the vacant cham bers of whose skulls the voices of the bosses are resounded, and through whose open mouths their mandates are made known to the people. One of these faithful henchmen, an apostate politician and a party nominee who was willing to serve either God 01 Mammon for the sake of an office, has industriously circulated the re port that I was, in his choice phra ssology, "working" both political par ties for their support at the polls. The simpleton thought that this an nouncement would invoke the indig nation of all good men against me. He did not know that the verdict of sensible people would be that a thing worth having is worth working for, and that the support of a candidate who is not a nominee of a party, must come from the people as a body, irrespective of party. Another spec imen of the caudal appendage of a party who, by the way. is also a nom inee (God bless the work) for the of fice of justice of the peace, feels it his ho un den duty in the interest of— not himself—but probably the Cape Cod fisheries, to parade the town from morning till the last man has left the streets at night, making the night hideous with denunciations of my im pertinence for daring to seek an office without being amounted with the holy oil of party nomination, pro claiming the calamity it would be to the public to elect a man that would be irresponsible to party for his offi cial acts. This candidate for a straight jacket in the near future who is bound that ignorance is mighty and must prevail, evidently recognizes ob ligations to party superior to ohliga turns to lus oath of office, his country men and bis God. He says that I do not belong to either party, while lie does; yet Robert Burns says that a louse is but a louse, though it crawls on the curl of a queen. My announcement is to the voter« of the precinct as a whole. I preferred this method of placing myself before the electors instead of approaching the bosses with cringing scr.ilityto a>k any favors that are in their power to bestow. I do not seek the office on pretensions of a desire to reform, nor do I need anyone to make an apology to tlm public for my previous charac ter anti ask them to draw the mantle of charity between me and the past. During a lesidenceof nearly two years in this community the only crime that these croakers can or dare charge me with is that I am an independent can didate before the people for the office named. Not« ithsiaiulmg that parly lines are drawn from the White House at Washington down to the office ot clerk of a school-district in Gallatiu county, ac office that r ays the inctitn bent the princely income or about $15 a veer. I have placed myself before the electors of this precinct untram meled by obligations to individual or party, and respectfully solicit their support on the day of election, believ ing as I do that there are manly men in Livingston u ho will not surrender their constitutional rights as American citizens at the sound of the horn, the bay of the hounds, nor the crack of the whip of the whippers-in, nor will they allow themselves to be driven in fear to the ]n>11s like sheep to the shambles. 1 am sir, with much respect yours, M. D. Kelly, Livingston, Oct. 25* Helena will soon be lighted by gas. Butte has also formed a gas company MONTANA NEWS. A new county road from White Sul phur Springs is being located and will be worked. Thomas Harvie, a Helena city pris oner, has been sent to thd insane asylum. By the accidental discharge of a shot gun Michael Bowers, near Toiton, had one of his legs almost blown off. * The body of a man supposed to have been killed by horse thieves was found on Box Elder creek near Fort Assinahoine on Sunday. VV. B. Nickles has sold out his inter est in the Helena printing firm of Geo. E. Boos & Go. and his place has been taken by S. H. Crounse. No trace of the men who held up the stage coach on the Jefferson and BouliLr road a few days ago has yet been obtained by the officers. New North-West: In response to a request from Guard W. W. Walton, Geo. W. Peek, the funny man of Mil waukee, has presented the peniten tiary library with the five volumes of his humorous w'orks. A Portland telegram of the 18th says: J. J. Hedges, the lawyer who was convicted of forging the,name of a client to a certificate of deposit, was sentenced to-day to four years in the the penitentiary. Hedges resided in Helena last year. Bismarck Tribune: Louis West hauser returned from a trip north of the city yesterday and reports thet prairie fires have swept everything be fore them from township 140 north, east and west as far as the eye can reach. Houses, barns and hay have been burned and it is feared that many have suffered heavy losses. Ba l Lands Cow Boy: The burning coal mine in the butte east of Medora is already a dangerous rival to the fam ous burning mine southwest of here. In the night the flames light up the whole butte, and it is a sight well worth seeing. After a look at it one is forced to admit that the desciiption of the Bad Lands "looking like h —I with the fire put out is rather inade quate. River Press: Parties who go to the Little Rockies or that portion of the country will do well to keep an eye on their stock, as horse-thieves are oper ating there on an as extensive a scale, apparently, as if the old gang along the Missouri had never been cleaned out. Numerous parties have recently bad their horses taken, and a few nights ago several head were stole» within a few miles of Fort Assina boine, and three from the post corral. Another raid ot the vigilantes, north of the Missouri, will be necessary if this thing keeps up. Near Montreal an express train collided with a cattle train. The engineer and fireman were killed, several passengers badly injured and 150 cattle killed. William H. Dempsey, Washington, D. C., has been indicted by the U. S. Grand Jury on the charge of defrauding the Navy Department. He was stationer, and supplied most of the stationery used in the different departments of the capital. His plan, as alleged, was to receive orders from a department and receive payment for the goods without delivering them. Fra. Ravalli Monument Fund.
